The Ibanez AK85 Artcore is a set-neck, hollow body instrument. Ibanez builds the AK85 with a spruce top, gorgeous, flamed maple back and sides, and even a bound rosewood fingerboard. The AK85 successfully delivers the famous Artcore neck, Artcore pickups and acclaimed Artcore value. Other features include chrome hardware, a rosewood bridge for a strong, bright sound and an attractive appearance.
When Artcore guitars debuted in summer 2002, they turned the music industry upside down. No longer were full and semi-acoustic guitars just big expensive jazz boxes for jazz players - even some of Ibanez competitors bought them (no, we're not making this up). With Artcore guitars you get an amazingly affordable price plus the quality and tone you expect from Ibanez, the guitar company with over four decades of experience making full and semi-acoustic guitars.
This is a USED instrument. Only real finish issues are some checking around the strap-pin on the back of the guitar. Otherwise there is minor fret wear that does not affect the guitars playability! Please see photos for flaws.

Awesome transaction! I bought a pretty special guitar (previously owned by a famous guitarist), and Ish nailed it. Ethical dealer, quick ship, and fast responses. I look forward to doing business with them again in the future!Devin, L'arrivee D-60
